Meet  Nishaka

Prior to establishing Events By Nishaka, she was employed as an Area Sales Manager with General Electric’s Commercial Appliance Division working with residential building contractors. During her college years and into her corporate profession, her primary roles and responsibilities were project management, sales, marketing, and administration. Nishaka would assist with organizing events from the GE Recruiting Team to family and friends, to producing multiple Weddings and Celebrations. 

Her “ah-ha” moment occurred upon hearing an inspirational message from her Pastor Otis Lockett Sr. where he asked the question; “What is it that you do so well you would do it for free?”

Nishaka acknowledged this charge as her confirmation to pursue her passion for event planning. In 2007, she devoted 100% of her time and creative passion to delivering events with excellence! Now with over 22 years of experience and 15 years in business, Nishaka continues to expand, elevate, and evolve in this passion she loves dearly.

"Passion is the key to purpose and Living purposely brings joy and peace.”
